I normally buy from local bait shops when they place their order I ask for them to order me a pound or three.  I keep them in a cooler with cold water.  Once in a awhile I'll dump some bloody bullhead water in to feed them then the next day or 2 I swap the water out with fresh pond water.  But lately the baitshops can't get them as early as I need them so I found a guy near rochester that traps them and sells them to me by the pound.

nice meal you caught there trapper :thumbup_smilie:
 

best bullhead bait ever is danny kings punchbait blood flavor.  i use a 4 treble and cut one hook off.  i do this because they have small mouths and the 3rd hook hinders them sucking it in.  same rig for channels too same reason.  they come along ways to get that stuff!  a tub will last you a couple years. channel cats all sizes also love this bait.  i hear trout guys are using the garlic flavor too.  it stays on the hook without anything else needed because of the fibers in it.  still there when reel fish in even!  if you want to up your catches get some. 
some fishermen tell lies,  this one doesnt need to

Back when I made a lot of trips way up north, you couldn’t bring worms across the border.for some reason, but you could bring leeches. I’d buy a couple pounds of big brown leeches and have a blast.

I always nipped the tail with a scissors to put some extra scent in the water.

Trap is correct.
Nowadays, in order to take worms, they must be in chopped newspaper or bedding.
Not dirt.

They don't want US parasites from the dirt.

I buy the leeches from a local who traps them around rochester.  But I hear that Davenports on sodus has a fresh batch and I need to go replenish my supply.  Only caught 20 last night in fairhaven but weird thing is how warm the fish are.  I know the pond is real shallow like 3' but wouldn't expect the fish to feel as warm as they do.  Wonder how they taste?  Maybe mushy?  I give them all away to people who can't make it out fishing so I just put in the labor to catch them and make them clean them.
